Today, we’re excited to announce that Docebo has acquired forMetris, a global leader in learning effectiveness technology. This is a monumental step in the expansion of Docebo’s product portfolio and will allow Docebo to address the needs of our customers across the complete training lifecycle.
My friend, CEO of forMetris, Laurent Balagué, has had a close partnership with our Docebo family for the past year, making forMetris available to Docebo customers through native integration. Now, we come together as one to enable customers to measure the full impact of enterprise learning.
Joining forces with forMetris will also open the doors to Docebo France, expanding our physical European presence and footprint. Over the next few months, the forMetris and Docebo product development teams will come together to augment the current product, now known as Docebo Learning Impact, and give organizations a better way to validate learning effectiveness.
Gauging learning impact is within arm’s reach
Companies spend a lot of time and resources creating, delivering, and tracking learning, but many struggle to understand its effectiveness. They don’t have a quick and continuous way to measure impact and pivot learning programs that deepen their learning investments and make noise beyond their LMS. Laurent and I agree that Return of Learning should be one of the main KPIs for the L&D world.
Fewer than 16% of organizations effectively identify and track metrics, including knowledge transfer, behavior change, and business impact for their learning (Brandon Hall Group’s 2020 Learning Measurement Study). The inability to measure learning’s impact is a top challenge to achieving critical learning outcomes that tie back to business outcomes.
Docebo Learning Impact is a complete set of tools, from pre-training to follow-up evaluation and self-coaching applications, to help companies measure learning efficiency on a larger scale and boost its impact.
This is only the beginning
Learning technology has proven its ability to help businesses navigate disruption. It is no longer a nice-to-have—it is mission-critical to an organization’s ability to adapt and thrive through change.
We are looking forward to the next few months, as Docebo and forMetris merge as one. Docebo Learning Impact is only the beginning of an exciting journey ahead to make learning a strategic business driver of growth and success.
Stay safe and stay healthy,
Founder & CEO
